Time Limits on Abortion?

Hello to all,


I have been a lurker on this board for quite sometime. I have read thousands of messages that attempt to debate the topic of abortion. I have seen people that claim to be PC who are clearly pro-abortion, and I have seen people who claim to be PL who make far to many "exceptions".


I, myself have read much information relating to both sides of the abortion debate and find definite holes in both arguements.


There is absolutely no way to civily and effectively debate this topic because it doesn't rely solely on scientific facts ,morality and religion is also involved. I have seen PLers present accurate and true arguements that are cited from valuble sources only to have a PCer diregard it as "bias, fake, censored, etc." I have also seen PLers desperately resort to religion as a fail safe, when truly

See I like the term pro life because it is really where I stand. Problem is some people are pro fetus not pro life IMO

Although I think QUALITY of LIFE is just as important as QUANTITY of LIFE.

>>If one truly is pro-life, and believes that all life is equally important, then how can one justify terminating a life for one reason but not others? <<

well then we would be back to the simease twin analogy I used before. Also I think there is such a thing as compassionate termination.

I know I am living in no mans land with my opinions as they don't really jive with either side.

I am anti elective abortion (purely elective not the definition used for statistic)

Pro euthanasia

pro education

Pro support (for the born which will IMO lead to less elective termination)

and for the moment not concerned with making elective abortion illegal (and honestly probably never will be in my life) but more concerned with making it unnecessary

"well then we would be back to the simease twin analogy I used before. Also I think there is such a thing as compassionate termination."

As do I. You'll find that you and I are pretty much in agreement on these issues. I'm also well-aware of your opinions on this issue, having discussed this with you at length. :) I'm anti-true elective abortion as well, but I have no interest whatsoever in making it illegal. As I am fond of saying, I am also against disposable diapers (I think they are an evil the extent of which we cannot truly appreciate), but I have no interest whatsoever in making them illegal.

I just find that the term "pro-life" does not truly mean for those who espouse it what it technically means. It doesn't necessarily mean "pro-quality-of-life," since many PL are not as interested in the quality of the life saved (as you are) as they are in saving the life period.

~Just a side note: I've noticed very few pro-life opinions.~


Yes, not many stick around.

Relax. This is a debate. It isn't personal.



Most PLers believe that if the mother is about to die unless

>>Do you consider it 'half assed' to try to save a life where possible?<<

But of course it is also half assed belief if you have really considered the social, legal and emotional ramification.

>The KKK thinks it is their MORAL obligation to hang every person of color, Jew or Catholic who has sex with a white woman, commits a crime, or gets in their way.

I'm guessing she can tell the difference, even without a tape measure,
